    How Far, How Near

    I watched it because I expected something like "Hourglass Sanatorium". I shouldn't have. And Never will again.

    Sure it had some absurd scenes; but overall it was not enough surreal-structured for me to feel it as a dream, nightmare or etc. The cuts from events occurring in one place to another were not smart, but disjointed.

I believe that it might be a metaphor on a certain stage of life (as we know, or a more spiritual one).…

    I decided to add a review for this movie as soon as I found out that the original German title is "Every man for himself, and God against all".

    Now this title really suits it stronger. A real story about one particular character in history. Kaspar Hauser was a mysterious man who was left behind in life. When he started to learn basic stuff, it was already too late. But he tried his best to live a normal life in…
